To be a nigger or a nigga . . .

Its one thing to call someone a nigger, its another thing to have the privilege and unfortunate power to enact the hatred and bigotry implicit in incendiary uses of the word, herein is where the problem lies.

As I look back over this week’s discussion over race in America on many levels from Paula Deen to the Trayvon Martin case, I wonder how far removed mainstream society wants us to be from the historical reality of the use of the word nigger. No matter how much people of color try to embrace the word it does not erase the historical context in which it has lived and still lives.

An interesting argument in the Trayvon Martin case is that he supposedly called George Zimmerman a cracker and this in itself proved his racism. His utilization of the word had no power, no historical relevance and cannot reinforce the oppression of a people thus invalidating this argument yet Trayvon is being painted as a racist.

People what are your thoughts on this week rampant discussion of race?

Cataloging Criminals before Conviction . . . the power of DNA

Image

Recently a major decisions was supported by the Supreme Court which allows anyone arrested or detained for arrest to have their DNA swabbed and put into the national federal database. This major change has a significant impact on how crime is conceptualized and addressed in our country. However, for minorities, a group that is disproportionately targeted for arrest (NYC’s Stop and Frisk is one example) this ruling changes the game. Racial profiling becomes a more  factor based on “biology” and having a database full of minorities DNA appears that convictions will more likely be imposed on this group.
